The Golden Dance Store. It was danced by a chain of dancers, in a line or circle, usually holding hands. The bransle was distinctive for its pattern of several large steps to the left, followed by the same number of smaller steps to the right, so that the chain or circle moved gradually to the left. Originally a country dance in which the music was passed on via rote aural imitation, it was adopted into the aristocratic courts where it was formally written down and has thus survived for us today.
This particular bransle was written by Michael Praetorius who was a German composer, organist, and music theorist. He was a very versatile and prolific composer and developed many musical forms based on Protestant hymns.
His most widely-known work was Terpsichore, Musarum Aoniarum , a collection of more than instrumental dances, including this branle. Terpsichore is his only surviving secular work.
